.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
RAIN CHANCES WILL END SUNDAY NIGHT AS DRIER AIR MOVES INTO THE
REGION. A BRIEF ONSHORE FLOW WILL DEVELOP ON MONDAY WITH
TEMPERATURES SLIGHTLY WARMING INTO THE 60S...BUT ANOTHER STRONGER
FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVER THROUGH ON TUESDAY. INCREASED RAIN
CHANCES...MODERATE TO STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS...AND TEMPS IN THE 40S
AND 50S ARE EXPECTED IN WAKE OF THE FRONT THROUGH THURSDAY. THE RIP
CURRENT RISK IS CURRENTLY EXPECTED TO REMAIN LOW THROUGH NEXT WEEK.


* A LOW RISK OF RIP CURRENTS MEANS THAT ANY RIP CURRENTS THAT DO
  FORM ARE LIKELY TO BE WEAK BUT STILL MAY POSE A DANGER TO POOR
  SWIMMERS. RESEARCH HAS SHOWN RIP CURRENTS ARE TYPICALLY MORE
  FREQUENT IN THE VICINITY OF JETTIES...INLETS...AND PIERS AND
  THESE CAN BE QUITE STRONG ON DAYS WHERE THE OVERALL RIP CURRENT
  THREAT IS LOW...ESPECIALLY IF STRONG SOUTHERLY OR NORTHEASTERLY
  WINDS EXIST.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
